Roc de la Melca (18.950 B.C.)
The prehistoric site of Roc de la Melca is a large block of sandstone with Eocene fossils, and underneath its edges there is a small shelter which was occupied the humans in prehistoric times.
The prehistoric site of Roc de la Melca was discovered by Francesc Riuró in the middle of the 1960s, and the activity in evidence there links it to late Gravettian culture (18,950 BC).
Curiously in the upper parts there are some circular furrows and holes, around 50cm or more in diameter, which is a common characteristic of megalithic monuments and burial caves. It is believed that in the Modern Age the block was probably used as a quarry for millstones, and the furrows and holes are probably a sign of these extractions.
